CULLMAN, Ala. (WBRC) - A two-vehicle crash on Tuesday evening, March 28, claimed the life of a Cullman woman.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) says 47-year-old Chessi R. Waddell was fatally injured when the 2003 Toyota Corolla that she was driving was struck by a 2006 Mazda MPV, driven by 39-year-old Tye W. Leach, of Hartselle.

Waddell was pronounced dead at the scene. Leach was injured and transported to UAB Hospital for treatment.
